Work with a Psychologist in Richmond, VA (Shockoe Bottom)

Jenna has been struggling to get out of bed in the morning. Her boyfriend notices and ask if she’s okay. She responds with a flippant, “Yeah, I’m fine,” but inside she feels horrible. This goes on for several weeks, and her state digresses with each day that passes. She’s slowly stopped going to work; she doesn’t see or talk to her family members; she makes up excuses so she doesn’t have to go out with her friends; she’s even stopped painting, which has always been her favorite hobby.

Jenna doesn’t realize it, but she’s experiencing symptoms of depression. Depression comes with harmful symptoms like despair, a lack of interest in day to day activities, withdrawal from others. Fortunately, her boyfriend convinces her to talk to a psychologist about how she’s feeling, who brings her depression symptoms to light. Jenna’s psychologist then assists Jenna with managing her symptoms, figuring out why she’s feeling this way, and most importantly, working on getting back to her normal, happy self.

“Ask for help. Receiving is an act of generosity.” –Cheryl Richardson

As you can see from the example above, psychologists can help you manage mental illnesses like depression. But their help doesn’t stop here. They can also help you grieve the loss of a loved one; resolve conflicts with friends and family members; manage stress; process difficult emotions; and so much more. They have dedicated years to acquiring the appropriate skills, experience, and level of training it takes to help you live a better life. The psychologists at Thriveworks in Richmond (Shockoe Bottom) want to go on this journey with you. To schedule an appointment with a Thriveworks psychologist at our Richmond office, give us a call at (804) 980-7242.
